FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Provides effective 24-hour relief from heartburn and acid reflux.
- MUPS tablet - built on patented technology.
- Glucose and lactose free.
Losec Extra tablets are for the short-term relief of reflux-like symptoms. These symptoms may include a burning feeling rising up from the stomach or chest (heartburn), or acid regurgitation. The pain can be made worse by eating large meals, bending over or lying flat, and by hot, alcoholic or acidic drinks such as orange juice.
Losec contains the active ingredient omeprazole. Omeprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid produced by the stomach through a highly targeted mechanism of action on the stomach. It is a specific inhibitor of the acid pump in the parietal cell of the stomach.
Losec is rapid acting and provides control through reversible inhibition of gastric acid secretion with once daily dosing.
Losec Extra are MUPS® tablets. Each tablet contains omeprazole 20.6mg (corresponding to omeprazole 20mg) as enteric coated tablets, protecting the medicine from the stomach acid.
